I rise on a point of order. Standing order 100(2) states very clearly:

A senator calling for a division shall not leave the chamber until the division has taken place.

I didn't see who called the division, but Senator Bernardi was in the chair. If that senator has left, I'd ask you to consider, and perhaps take advice, as to whether the division should proceed.

The CHAIR: Senator Leyonhjelm, on the same point of order?
